Dad was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Corps of Engineers. Mom & Dad got married at Ft. Lewis Washington after the war, and his men decorated this earth mover as their "carriage" from the chapel to the reception. This is a colorized black and white, and I especially like how they drew in a rainbow in the background.
Lucky gal Yin Mi was presented with a dress made from 9,999 roses by her beau Xiao Fan in honor of their engagement. The word for "nine" is auspicious in Chinese because it sounds the same as the word for "forever." This is great and all, but being the OCD person that I am I would probably chuck one more rose at her just to hit 10,000.
